Two-stage furnaces have various pressure switches to help the system to run at different speeds—and use less energy. These switches also make sure your furnace runs safely and vents extra gases from the heat exchanger.
Your low pressure switch may not be operating right if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then slows down and enters into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your furnace will communicate something’s wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to show error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it tells you a fault code.
A blocked vent or a draft can also trigger the error, so your Roland J. Down Service Expertstechnician will check other parts of your furnace first.
The cost to fix your furnace relies on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to remedy it.
You can expect to pay between $40 and $350 if you need a new low-fire pressure switch.
